Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    Display List Referencing


    I had some help on this the other day which was very useful but my project has changed a bit since then.

    I have a container movieclip called cont_mc then inside that I have a series of pins which are called pin1_mc then inside the pins I have a final movie clip the size of the pin head to act as the hit state.

    You can see what I talking about here:


    Before I had the pins in the container movie clip I was able to bump them to the top of the display list using this code in the on over function.

    this.setChildIndex(event.target.parent, this.numChildren-1);

    Now I have wrapped them in the container mc this code no longer works and I get an error, must be a child of the caller?

    How can I change this?

    cont_mc.setChildIndex(event.target.parent, event.target.parent.parent.numChildren-1);
